According to a December 1951 Hollywood Reporter "Rambling Reporter" item, Cornel Wilde was originally considered for the role of "Paul Lartal." Although George Lewis was billed with his middle intial, J., in the closing credits, the initial was not included in Lewis' name in the opening cast credits. A June 1952 Hollywood Reporter news item stated that Alan Ladd broke his hand before filming, resulting in minor script revisions to accommodate the bandages. Some scenes were shot in Lone Pine, CA. Although a July 1952 Hollywood Reporter news item adds Jimmy Bays to the cast, his appearance in the final film has not been confirmed.
